10 Things I'd Tell My Newbie Blogging Self

I can't really remember much of what I thought to myself when I started blogging so for Monday's post, I wrote about what I'd tell my newbie blogging self.

1. Find a new designer and volunteer to be their guinea pig so you don't pull your hair out trying to perfect your own mediocre design.
2. Don't you dare use Google+ as your profile. G+ is the devil's work.
3. put yourself out there. comment on others' posts and you'll make connections a lot faster.
4. Use the Twitter. Tweet your posts and use it to bond with other bloggers. Use the Twitter.
5. Click around on linkups. Make some friends.
6. Don't be afraid to reach out to the "big bloggers." They're usually pretty down-to-earth people. Hey, Taylor and Helene (masterminds behind #Blogtober14)!
7. It's okay to take a break when you're feeling burnt out. Refresh and ease yourself back into it with a cool linkup.
8. Make an attempt to have a uniform width for pictures.
9. Tell your mom about your blog. She'll love it.
10. Have fun -  people will love what you've written and you'll make some awesome friends!

  1. tell your mom... I love it. Pretty sure most of my clicks are from my mom :)

  2. LOVE #1 haha, it's a good idea. Totally need to get over myself and tackle #6!

  3. Ha ha I told my mom about my blog and once she saw it she gave her tablet away. Actually she couldn't figure out how to work facebook. She saw my blog and said, "what is this?" After an hour of explaining what a blog was, I gave up. LOL

  4. I really love your design! I know I've told you that multiple times, but I love it!


I love reading your comments and I try respond to every one. Thanks for reading!
